Code: PCC/20/264 Resilience Awareness

The workplace can be rich with opportunity. It's a place where we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting.

Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life. Challenges and change are a constant for all of us. Some of these involve taking some degree of risk, while some may be crises or emergencies that demand our immediate attention.

You will have developed coping mechanisms during your life that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can even make situations worse.

What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:

• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life

N.B. There is a Resilience & Wellbeing module on the Intranet featuring videos and downloadable resources.

Code: PCC/20/358 Mental Capacity Act Refresher: Learning Lessons from Court of Protection cases

Course Outline
This is a one-day training session to refresh your knowledge on the Mental Capacity Act
Mental Capacity Act cases go to the Court of Protection either where there is conflict amongst the people involved, and/or where the issue is so serious or complicated that it cannot be resolved through meetings and negotiation. The rulings of the Court, and the reasons for those rulings, can be invaluable in helping health & social care practitioners deal with similar issues in their own practice. So this session will look at a range of cases which have been considered by the Court of Protection, to see what lessons can be learnt for our everyday practice.
Who should attend?
Anyone who works in a health and/or social care setting (eg hospitals, social work teams, residential or community care, GP surgeries etc). Participants should already be familiar with the Mental Capacity Act and the Code of Practice, because this is not an awareness session.
